Some other thread mentioned that pre-existing old version MacPython
(V2.4 in my case) could be the problem. So, I removed MacPytho
(instruction here:
http://mac.downloadatoz.com/tutorial/3498,macpython.html). The install
managed to go a little bit further. Now the error messages are:

Before reporting any errors, please run "fink selfupdate" and try again.
If you continue to have issues, please check to see if the FAQ on Fink's
website solves the problem.  If not, ask on one of these mailing lists:
